Wendell August Handcrafted Metal Gifts- Review and Giveaway!!



If you're looking for a beautiful handcrafted metal gift for someone special, or would like a unique piece to add to your home's decor, then I have just the website for you to visit-Wendell August Forge!! 


I was able to choose a piece for review, and after debating for a while, I settled on the Give Us This Day Bread Tray. It looked like a breathtaking piece in the picture, so I was expecting a gorgeous tray. But, it looks even better in person! Decorated with lovely stalks of wheat waving in the breeze, it has a ribbon/scroll with the words "Give us this day our daily bread-Matthew 6:11" on it. Absolutely stunning! There is one drawback, however. It's so nice that I didn't want to use it for serving bread! Seriously, this is a beautiful serving tray as well as a nice piece to set out just for looks in your kitchen hutch :)
The tray came beautifully wrapped and in a gift box, so if you're getting it as a gift you're all set. Just add a card, and your package is ready to go!
Wendell August also offers personalization on most of their items, which really make these a great gift idea, or a piece to commemorate a special event!





The color is messing up on my camera, so here's the stock image from Wendell August's website:

"Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. The company was founded in Brockway, Pennsylvania by Wendell McMinn August, who, at age 38, was active in the coal industry.
August engaged Ottone “Tony” Pisoni, a blacksmith in his coal mine, to hand-forge door latches for his home. Admiring the low cost and high quality of Pisoni’s work, August was inspired to start a decorative ironware business. Pisoni was joined by three more blacksmiths who handcrafted the first product line, including one-of- a-kind fireplace andirons, candlesticks, lighting standards, doorknockers, latches, railings, and grilles for windows and doors.
In addition to the company’s four retail stores, Wendell August also works with a nationwide network of sales professionals as it handcrafts elegant yet affordable custom gifts, awards, incentives, and trophies for businesses and organizations throughout the globe. To view the business and organization presentation, visit www.wendellaugust.biz. Wendell August products are also sold through its own catalog and its strong online presence at www.wendellaugust.com.
Today Wendell August Forge maintains the same painstaking dedication to heritage and history…to artistry and craftsmanship…to quality American made products…that propelled Wendell August to first open his forge in 1923."
